Pragmatic Ajax

I'm in day two of the Pragmatic Ajax Studio. It's been entertaining, particularly with my cousin in his usual enthusiastic form...

Of course, I have been falling behind in the exercises because I am not a natural when it comes to JavaScript. The first day of the course is a real eye opener on the power of that language. I don't know that I'll ever need/want to get that deeply into it, but JavaScript in some ways more powerful than a lot of other languages that I am used to using, particularly in the variety of things you can do with functions. Of course, with that power comes great responsibility.
